Legendary Teutonic heavy mettalers ACCEPT have recently confirmed as the headliner act of “A NIGHT TO REMEMBER” At Wacken Open Air Festival ‘s 25th Anniversary on JULY 31st 2014.
W.O.P. organisers have posted the following statement:
” Today we proudly present to you: Accept. After 10 years of absence the band from Germany returns to the Holy Wacken Ground.
Founded in 1971 Accept are pioneers in terms of metal music and have gained cult status by now.
The band will be playing their special Restless and Wild / Best Of set. Restless and Wild was their fourth studio album which has had a great impact on the world of metal not only because Fast as a Shark is considered to be the very first speed metal song at all. We are thrilled to see them play their epic show. This will definitely be a night to remember!
We are going to celebrate our anniversary as promised with bands from all the different stages of the festival history. As always it is our goal to bring you a good mixture of old metal veterans and some fresh blood. We think this will make the perfect Line-up for a 25th Anniversary!
We are very happy to have such bands as 5th Avenue, Axe ‘n Sex, Sacred Season or Skyline in our Line-up because they performed at the very first Wacken Open Air and there for laid the foundation of the festival itself.
Other companions like Saxon, Motörhead, Kreator, Hammerfall and Tobi Sammet of Avantasia + special guests will perform live on stage due to our jubilee. Accompanied by some newcomers and bands which haven’t played at the festival in a long time, for example Megadeth, King Diamond or Carcass.
25 years of Wacken Open Air – a journey through time and metal history – be prepared and get excited for the greatest heavy metal party of the year!!”
